Energy Matters

Save Money And Power


(NAPSI)—The U.S. Department of Energy estimates 25 to 40 percent of the energy used for heating or cooling a home is wasted. Contaminants in the heating and cooling system cause it to work harder, and shorten its life. Even with filters, the HVAC system still gets dirty through normal use.


A clean system doesn’t have to work as hard to maintain the temperature you prefer, it uses less energy and you save money while breathing clean.


So it pays to get your heating and cooling system cleaned regularly. More than just duct cleaning, this involves all the components the air stream touches throughout the system. 


According to the National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA), proper cleaning of an entire system takes technical skill and attention to detail. That’s why it’s important to find a contractor specifically trained and experienced in this type of cleaning. NADCA members possess general liability insurance, are trained and tested regularly, sign on to a code of ethics, and must clean and restore your heating and cooling system in accordance with NADCA standards.
